Just flicking through A Dictionary of Common Fallacies and came across the following;

"Those unqualified to to take part in public life, whether mentally incapable or simply untaught, were known as idiots."

I think there are few people on these boards who would deny that Trumpy qualifies as an "idiot" by that criteria........

"those criteria", please!
One criterion, plural criteria.

Other than that, good post!

I'd happily hear criterions, but there are rather few citations for it and Messrs Oxford do not approve.

I dare say some readers have at some point acquired a ganglion. It's a sort of cyst, usually harmless and usually disappearing of its own accord in time. That is just about the only other Greek noun of the second declension in -ion that gets used in English, and its plural is by now generally taken to be ganglions.

Not in neuroanatomy it isn't but they're different sorts of ganglia - you're talking specifically about ganglion cysts.

What held you back? Can't imagine there was anyone round here who would have complained...

I had a racing bike called a Carlton Criterion. Quality bike, poor choice of product denominate.

TBH, it's not Trump I'm most annoyed about, it's his powerful enablers, and the tens of millions of voters who voted for him.
